We offer you and your family an unparalleled vacation experience.A visit to Kauai Backcountry Adventures represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Lihue trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.
Our one-of-a-kind activities include tubing down an old sugar plantation irrigation system, through open canals and several tunnels hand-dug circa 1870. Or you can soar through the air on our 7-line zipline course, traversing the side of a mountain down to a lush bamboo grove. Through it all you will learn about our island’s history, culture and natural environment. Come join us and take home memories for a lifetime!
The mission of Kauai Backcountry Adventures is to provide eco-tourism activities that are accessible to a broad range of people. Our zipline and tubing tours have minimal environmental impact and contribute to the preservation of Kauai’s history and culture. We have helped to restore sections of the old plantation irrigation system, which are now used for the Mountain Tubing Adventure. “We are pleased to be able to set a standard for balancing recreational activities and preservation of our amazing resources here on Kauai. We have opened up spectacular lands never before available to the public. Our exclusive access ensures careful stewardship of the land, total privacy and a genuinely unique experience”, says KBA owner Kelley Carswell Haneberg, member of a 5th generation Hawaii family.

Awesome time! Like no other tubing trip we have ever done. Highly recommend! Everyone was great so friendly and fun. You can tell they love what they do and truly enjoy it. Sherrie was Great! Energetic and funny. We also had Mason and one other guy (sorry I forgot his name) but the 3 of them were so funny!
Fabulous trip! The experience is very fun and unique. Floating through nature slowly is also very relaxing. The guides have this adventure dialed in perfectly- they are informative, funny, and helpful. Jordan was awesome. Lunch was even good! I thought I might feel scared in the tunnels but they are large and there are 3-4 guides with you moving through the group. Water is 3 feet deep at max depth so you can always stand up if necessary.
